While enjoying the Port Macquarie area, we visited this wonderful facility. Knowing they took care of the injured, misplaced and orphaned animals, we were pleased to pay the entrance fees. The koalas were especially interesting and we learned about the 200 of 700 species of eucalyptus they will eat. The roos walked freely around and were friendly. Other animals were... More

We always visit when in Port, even if just for a rest stop. They have such a great set up and do such an amazing job. Kids and adults love this place and it's even better if bringing an overseas visitor wanting to learn all about and have an up close experience. Free to visit but please give a donation... More

This unique facility is located just south of the town centre. Visitors get a close up experience with the resident koalas and patients at this volunteer run, not-for-profit hospital and study centre. Set in beautiful treed surroundings and with historic Roto House adjacent, the Koala Hospital is a must-see on anyone's itinerary.
